Pesto turkey sausage and tomato pizza


  1. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  2. ½ pound Larkin Bros. Italian sausage, casings removed
  3. 1 pound pizza dough, at room temperature
  4. cornmeal, for the baking sheets
  5. ½ cup pesto
  6. 1 cup grape tomatoes
  7. 8 ounces bocconcini or mozzarella
  8. kosher salt and black pepper


Heat oven to 475° F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a plate.

Shape the dough into 4 rounds and place on 2 cornmeal-dusted baking sheets. Dividing evenly, top with the pesto, tomatoes, bocconcini, and sausage; season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Bake until the crust is golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
